Good cryptic puzzles

A good set of puzzles pitched at about the right level for me. I can do 80% of the clues reasonably easily and head scratch about the rest for a while. I haven’t seen any errors so far but the harder clues do require a wide knowledge of the English language to crack them. For example, knowing kine is to do with cattle.

User friendly

I've used crossword apps that don't work intuitively and logically, but this does. Very easy to navigate between clues and make alterations, and a satisfying fireworks display on completion! The only very small change I might make for my own personal use would be to make the clues slightly more cryptic and requiring more thought, but I enjoy solving them anyway and it's great to be able to dip in and out, killing time while relaxing, traveling or waiting, without having to carryi a puzzle book around.

Just right

Works seamlessly. The ability to check answers is great, and thanks to the level of difficulty (which is just right for me), I am able to complete cryptic crosswords for the first time. I love it!
